25th Carole Nash Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show 2005

Author: Mortons Media Group
Posted on: Wednesday, Nov 03 2004

It's the 25th anniversary of the show this year and it is already setting
out to be an excellent show. Club stand space has sold out four months
before the show and we have had to turn away a dozen other clubs who were
all desperate to get in. Private entries are also filling up fast, with only
a few spaces left. available. It's a similar story with the trade, and
autojumble stands, with only a few plots remaining.

With the club displays being the best yet seen in the U.K. at Stafford in
October, expect the quality at the 25th Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show to
be no less. There will be club stands to serve every taste, from classic
British bikes, to classic Italian and Japanese -- respectively the AJS &
Matchless Owners Club, Moto Guzzi Club G.B and the Suzuki owners club, who
say they are making an interactive display for the kids. Others include the
National Hill Climb Association, the Red Marley, Cotton Owners Club and the
Francis Barnett Owners Club, all of who will be putting on some fantastic
displays. These are not the only clubs by any means, as we currently have 50
confirmed Club stands, all competing for the attention of the enthusiasts.
The Vincent owners club will be putting on an excellent display as they
celebrate the 50th anniversary of the closure of bike production at the
Vincent factory.

The quality of machines on display is amazing. Sid Wilkinson of Tetbury,
Gloucestershire is Bringing his lovely example of a 1924 Dot Bradshaw. Paul
Read is bringing a stunning 1962, 250 cc Ariel Leader which is all original
with all the period extras. Also Richard Lane from kingsteignton is bringing
along a superb 1951 James Cadet. The machine is 98 cc and was often used in
the post office. He is also bringing a 1935 Excelsior Consort. These are
just a few from the plethora of bikes on display all vying for attention.

It's still not too late to book a trade or autojumble stand at the show, so
to avoid disappointment book quickly as they are selling up fast.

The show gates open at 10am, closing at 5pm on Saturday & Sunday. Tickets
